This could either be the greatest thing ever, or a horrible horrible failure. Since Nexon is involved, I will remain sceptical until I see some gameplay.
I almost guarantee that it will be a PS3 exclusive, which is a bummer.

I hope they get a lot of help from Masamune and the writers that worked on the anime.

I was excited about this...until I saw "NEXON" and "FPS"...

As much as I adore GITS, I can't back that game...

Jesse Billingsley:
DO! NOT! SUCK!

This, I hope, will be like NeoTokyo on roids!

It probably wont suck to start with, but will eventually.

Nexon is pretty bad about handling its IPs, DFO hasn't had an update for even news since DECEMBER, not to mention how pathetic they're customer service is.

kinda feel bad for all you GitS fans, you kinda just got shafted with out knowing it :/

WOW Aren't you just a ball of sunshine....Keep your sympathy...

Shodan666:
I don't understand. This manga/anime lends itself so good to make an awsome game, but I guess that will never happen...

Well, the original GitS game on the PSX is pretty darn good actually. If they made a game like that, playing as a Tachikoma, I'd probably buy in a heartbeat.

The PS2 game was ok, but the AI stunk, and the story was just a bit too convoluted. I'm upset I never got to play the 4 player mode. I won't speak of the PSP game. Another GitS action game would turn out good, if given to a developer that was remotely inspired.

I'd be more optimistic about this, but I had to put up with Nexon's bullshit to play Vindictus.

pessimism via experience if you will

Well I am very interested to see how it will play out. If it sucks D'oh Well, Thank God for NeoTokyo!

"MMO..."

Stopped reading.

Will be awful.

I think your miss understanding me.

I'm not saying it will be 'bad', Nexon usually gets some pretty stuff, but they're idiots, like EA, but Korean :/

Bro, I've moved past this now. I didn't misunderstand. I've played a few of their games myself, then they got buried under titles like Armored Core V, Halo Reach, and Skyrim.

Good, once you understand the wall of numbers you are given when trying to build an AC, and join a active team that does more than grind all day. The online gameplay itself is the hardest part to get into, but I've discovered that that is common with all AC games with Online multiplayer. If you want to play it, try getting it used.

GitS? Yay.
MMOFPS? No.
Nexon? Oh dear mother of god, no!

Seriously..thats 2 against 1 there for me. I wouldnt have minded a MMO, if they did it as a third person shooter instead, tactic over "whose trigger finger is faster". Also Nexon..yeah, no. Just no. I played Nexon Games, and the customer support is laughable at best. And all their games end up turning into pay 2 win eventually, looking at you Combat Arms.

Still worst part is really the fps part, if it was third person, it would be awesome, but first person is done to death, aside from the gits license slapped on, its gonna play basicly like every fps out there already.

A GITS RPG would be great, if it were, say, en enhancement of the other cyberpunk dominance in the gaming industry - Deus Ex. But an MMO? Okay, could be, I am certainly interested. However wary. There is a lot of potential and material to draw from with the franchise without touching the actual characters. But if they do what I expect and make it revolve around certain people and well known places.... nah.

Developer Nexon, best known for its free to play titles

All I needed to read. This one's a pass, folks.

This. Man, if it was anyone other than Nexion, I'd be down for it. It's like picking up a girl at a bar only to find out at your place she has a penis.

Nexon, why the hell you gotta make this awkward?
